Dairy-Free and Dairy Mouthfeel Solutions
Delivering the right mouthfeel solutions for your applications, including vegan and allergen-free products, requires specialized flavor expertise and resources. At Edlong, we use over a century of experience exclusively focused on the taste of dairy and a cultivated library of hundreds of flavors that can be applied in thousands of combinations to offer the perfect mouthfeel solutions for your development challenges.
Everything Mouthfeel Solutions Can Be
Whether you’re looking to make beverages creamier, impart an indulgent fatty mouthfeel to cheeses or sour cream, or intensify the perceived thickness of beverages like iced tea, zero-calorie sodas, or alcoholic beverages, Edlong’s global team of flavor experts is uniquely skilled at leveraging and customizing our best-in-class library of dairy and dairy-free flavors to develop the right mouthfeel for your applications.
Our authentic-tasting dairy-free and dairy mouthfeel-enhancing flavors can also be used to help improve flavor consistency, boost and balance taste profiles, and increase the perception of creamy mouthfeel.
Our flavors are available in a variety of forms, even ones that are heat stable and can overcome the most intense processing conditions. Other formats include liquid/oil-soluble, paste, spray dry, powder, emulsions, and more. We also certify flavors to meet your label restrictions such as Organic, Kosher Dairy, Kosher Pareve, Halal, Non-GMO, and Whole Foods Compliant.
Mouthfeel can be affected by texture, chemical feeling factors, and even flavor and aroma compounds. Mouthfeel as part of food or beverage texture plays a big part in the whole eating or drinking experience. Nobody likes dry burgers. A skinny latte only looks good in the nutrition panel until it is too watery when being consumed. Taste is still king, and mouthfeel is a key factor in that overall experience when it comes to perceived flavor.Monica Gotomo Kapoor New Product Development Manager, US
Whether you are trying to achieve the right texture for mouthwatering chips, a juicy burger, or a creamy latte, our dedicated and highly skilled team of flavorists offers extensive experience in developing mouthfeel enhancement for a wide range of applications. Edlong’s expertise in dairy flavors and their building blocks, as well as the latest in mouthfeel technologies, consumer trends, and cultural preferences, fuels our ability to support you in developing exceptional products to suit your specific needs.
Many of our milk, butter and cream flavors often work well as mouthfeel solutions. In our application evaluations we have seen how vegetable fats used in plant-based applications can bring a waxy and mouthcoating effect when eaten but using some of our butter flavors can give a much more real-dairy mouthfeel.Anne Marie Butler Global Director, Innovation and Commercial Development
